Four eyes :)
Ben got his new glasses today! We always said Ben couldn't find an elephant in the middle of an empty room...then we got his eyes checked and his vision was 20/70 and he has astigmatism. He was really excited to get his glasses but the novelty has already worn off. He's discovered that with big temp changes, the glasses fog up and if you have sticky fingers and touch your glasses, the lenses get mucky.
I know I'm biased, but I think he looks positively adorable in them.
Maybe he'll be better at picking up after himself now that he can see! A mom can dream, can't she?
This week has been the usual craziness, plus two. And we had an ER visit this week. We hadn't been since February, so we were due. Only two visits this year (well, that first one was a double visit, but it still only counts once). So overall, we've been very accident free.
Kari ended up taking a swing to the face and sliced open her nostril. The good news, after waiting a couple hours in the ER, was the giant gaping hole slowly closed up as the swelling went down. They cleaned her up and told us it was swelling and she didn't need stitches. I didn't quite believe the doctor, but decided to wait it out. This morning, her nose looked pretty normal. No gaps. The doctor took one look at my dirty from playing outside child who already, at age 4, has a file at the ER and the battle wounds to prove it, and declared that this would probably not be her last visit LOL I guess this is what happens when you send kids outside to play all day instead of keeping them cooped up indoors watching TV.
